The irrepressible Richard is spending the week cross training, Mountain biking in Phoenix. Hopefully the sun will bake the cold out of him. He biked this route. I talk to him post-ride, He seem exhilarated! He talked about big rocks , long drops and dealing with speed, he sounded very happy.
He has looked longingly at some climbing areas. including this one too bad he neglected to take his belayer along on the trip!
